There is an awful lot of nonsense and unverified claims and suggestions among the reviews. Please would people actually think before posting nonsense, such as "....he wore panties." This is actually an immensely useful archive collection. I have listened with great care over the time it has been available and find nothing which is questionable regarding the content.

Maybe we should leave the comments and not remove them. After all that's one of the reasons why churchill fought the war. Free speech. Even though the comments are by a stupid cunt.

This is a great collection, however it needs a chronological reference, as it relates to events of that time.
Second would you please REMOVE the troll comments, they are neither credible or wanted.

All in one place.
The Churchill Estate (as well as British Institutions like BBC, British Library and British Pathe that don't allow downloads) are extremely possessive of archive material. There is a substantial amount of British pre-1950 spoken word recordings from the arts, to politicians to royalty - nearly all were put onto 78s for public consumption, so it's OUR heritage. Yet there's no single accessible source for them - they're spread all over the place, so it's good that these Churchill recordings, at least, are freely available.

1) May I suggest that someone edit these reviews and remove the especially moronic ones.
2) May I suggest attaching dates to these speeches. They are random rather than chronological.
3) Thank you Poe for at least one intelligent appraisal of Churchill's stature.
4) I'm reading "Winston's War" presently and it is very good (historical fiction).

These speeches show what a brilliant and prescient man the world had in Winston Churchill. It is truly tragic that, like so many before and after, people refused to believe his words until too late. Fortunately, there was a happy ending to the story, but not before millions died. Were his words heeded, one must wonder what the outcome might have been.
